    Yeah, in other types, there's usually some kind of conspiracy theory stuff with a strong reality-denying component. There's a tendency to throw out anything that does not meet the theories, and it can often be be absurdly obvious that someone is doing this.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I know three close INTJs. All three of them are racists, though all three of them are the most 'helpful' balanced, hardworking, just people I know. (Not towards any particular skin tone, just the people belonging to particular ethnicities.)

    @uumlau have you noticed racist tendencies in INTJs. If so do you think you know why.

    No I am NOT saying you are one.

    Jung thought Ni types were the objectively stupidest group dismmissable by rational thinkers who value things like science and statistics.

    But what did he know

    (Si types not so far behind, he classified both to be similar in some regard)

    Hahahahah!

    Review your INTJs and see if they are "culturalists" as opposed to "racists". Racism is stupid as it is very unreliable. But if someone is from a particular culture, you can predict a LOT of behavior without knowing very much about them.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    What's the difference between that and racial stereotyping?

    It's a whole new word for me.

    You Google-Fu is weak, young one. Culturalist - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    In simplest terms, are they judging people based on their upbringing, or on their actual race? And what kind of judgments are they making? As a side note, are they bigoted about it or do they make thoughtful statements? Do they whine and complain about people of other races, or do they observe patterns and behavior more or less objectively?
